Hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris is an opportunity for the country's economy and for revival in foreign investments, but it is also a major springboard for the development of the Greater Paris area. For over 200 years, the Caisse des Dépôts group has always invested in the major works of its time, serving the public interest; that is why it has been an Official Partner of Paris 2024 since February 2016. The Group is therefore fully committed to this major project by helping to turn the Olympic and Paralympic Village into a shining example of a smart and sustainable city capable of meeting its users' needs – first those of the athletes then those of the district's future residents and users.
Today, our institutional website is opening an area dedicated to the Parisian bid for 2024: it shows our commitment, our mobilisation throughout the history of the Olympics, the desire to create a smart city through the Olympic and Paralympic Village and our on-going actions.
